About Benjamin

For more than two centuries, biographers have endeavored to define Benjamin Franklin's greatness. In celebration of the tercentenary, or 300th birthday, of one of America's founding fathers, About Benjamin uncovers the man behind the countless achievements in science, art, medicine, education and politics. Historians, artists, curators, authors and architects discuss Franklin's musical and artistic inventions, his currency-printing innovations, his early diplomatic dealings, his penchant for fine foods and spirits and the nagging medical issues he took to his grave.
